You still can, nothing prevents a service from forbidding users to
create whitelist-enabled node (supporting != allowing). And I want to
bet that you will get those services ;-)
But anyway, we're drifting from the original topic. The only point i
wanted to make is that a simple IQ protocol with IQ pushes to other
connected resources (like we do for blocking, privacy lists, and the
roster) is probably a lot simpler to implement for clients than
whitelist nodes, which, if i'm not mistaken, involves a chain of
checking existence of a node, possibly creating the node upon each
login, and then publishing to the node.
